Four demonstrators killed in protests in Cameroon
The police in Cameroon four demonstrators killed in protests against the use of French in schools and in courts.
The victims fell in Bamenda, a city in the north west region of Cameroon. Bamenda is located in a region where English is spoken but the government of Cameroon wants the French to enter as its official language.
Cameroon is composed of ten semi-autonomous regions, eight of which are mainly French and the other two English. Also, the system of law differs between the Francofone and anglo-Saxon part of the country that was created after unification of British and French colonies. The English minority already feels a long time discriminated against.
